Floor, wall, and ceiling gaps can be alarming for many homeowners. Left untreated, they can become a safety concern and cause further damage to your home's structure. There are many factors that cause floor, wall, and ceiling gaps, but the two most common include:
When it comes to repairing your floor and wall gaps, it is not a do-it-yourself project. Don't try to install beams or concrete blocks under damaged floor joist. It may collapse or create more problems in the long run.
The best solution is to contact the experts at Jerry's Waterproofing. We'll fix the root of the problem to prevent further settlement and make your foundation stable. Our experts are trained to identify and diagnose foundation issues and provide the best advice for your situation.
Some of our repair solutions include ECP steel push piers and ECP helical piers. Steel push piers are driven into the soil beneath the foundation until they reach stable soil. The piers help support the weight of the structure and raise the foundation back to its original height. This process helps close gaps that were created by settlement or sagging joists.
Like steel push piers, helical piers are another foundation repair alternative. Instead of being pushed into the soil, helical piers are screwed in. This rotation stabilizes and supports the foundation without causing disruption to the work area.
